Onion Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
Wow, are these potatoes good!! I didn't have time to bake these in the oven, so I cooked my potatoes in the micro and then cut them into cubes. I sprinkled some onion soup mix atop the lightly oiled cubes and put the potatoes in a lightly oiled pan on the stove to carmelize and brown. My husband and I couldn't believe just how good this turned out. The mix almost seemed to enhance the sweetness of the sweet potato, and the added saltiness was a welcome surprise. We will definitely be making this again!

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
I made this using a bag of frozen “California mix” vegetables (carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower). I cooked them in chicken broth until tender and used no salt in the breadcrumb mix. The mix didn’t stick to the veggies very well, so as suggested next time I'll try pouring melted butter on top and then adding the breadcrumb mixture. My guests added parmesan individually, since one person can't eat cheese. These veggies were outstanding, and the side dish was easy to prepare. The one bad thing about this recipe? My oven broke shortly after I made it, and now I can't satisfy the craving! :oD

Grandma's Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
My favorite tomato soup is Campbell's, but I think I've been persuaded to change! I used less butter, salt, and sugar than called for in this recipe and didn't feel it affected the taste at all. It was super quick and easy to make. Grandma's soup has made it into my permanent book of recipes! Thank you so much for sharing.

Ranch Bean Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
The ranch dressing mix, cheddar cheese, and sour cream really turn an ordinary can of refried beans into a tasty dip! This recipe is easy enough to estimate measurements if you're comfortable doing so. The next time I make this I'll probably use homemade refried beans instead of canned. I gave this 4 stars, because I think it could have used a little bit more spice (taco/pinto bean seasoning or Rotel, maybe?).

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This was a super-tasty way to make shrimp! I pan-fried instead of deep-fried them, and the results were still amazing. These would make excellent appetizers for get-togethers, though I'll bet you couldn't make them fast enough to keep your friends happy!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
When I made this I omitted the corn, but I otherwise followed the recipe's ingredients as written. This was amazing and tasted just like those wonderful fried versions I used to have in elementary school! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us.

Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This recipe was the perfect meal for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner at home. We couldn't find panko bread crumbs, so we used Italian-seasoned bread crumbs instead. Next time we will add less blue cheese to make the meal less salty. We served the filet with a nice salad, garlic mashed potatoes, and a glass of red wine. Highly recommended!

Party Punch IX

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
This punch is very good. We reduced the recipe from 4 to 2 cups of sugar, but it still seemed too sweet. I will definitely reduce (or maybe eliminate) the sugar next time. Thank you for a tasty party drink!

Chocolate Layered Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I followed this recipe exactly as written except I used a store-bought Oreo crust. I can understand that using less milk in the pudding mix makes for a thicker chocolate, however it was almost impossible to spread over the pie without breaking into the cheese layer below. I am not sure if reducing/eliminating the confectioner's sugar would mess up the bottom layer's consitency, but the bottom of the pie was too uncomfortably sweet to enjoy. I might make this again with some changes.

Ham and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I made this with leftover baked ham, frozen chopped spinach (defrosted and with moisture squeezed out), 1/2 a small onion (diced) and about 1/2 tbsp garlic powder. This made a very good dinner, but I thought the spinach itself needed seasoning added. This was very easy to prepare and makes a very filling meal. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's leftovers!

Scrambled Egg Brunch Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This made a pretty good meal. I cut the recipe in half, used bacon instead of ham (it's what I had in the fridge), and used Pam instead of butter. My total baking time was around 17 minutes. Thanks for helping make a filling and tasty meal for dinner!

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
I used the recipe for the filling and instead used a ready-made pie crust. When filling my crust I did not first place quartered pecans at the bottom; I simply added them to the syrup mixture. I did, however, keep the best-looking pecan halves for the top and arranged them in a nice spiral-type pattern. I was going to add vanilla as others suggested but forgot; it's okay, because the pie didn't really need it. This was a wonderful and sweet pecan pie. Thanks for taking my memories home!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
We served these potatoes this past weekend at our dinner party. I altered the recipe slightly based on others' reviews. I baked the potatoes first with a light coating of olive oil and salt. Also, I cut both the milk and sour cream in half (to 1/4 cup milk and about 1/2 cup sour cream) to keep them from being too runny. The result was fantastic, and all six people present loved them. Thank you! This one's a keeper.

Awesome Broccoli Marinara

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This was a good side dish to accompany my macaroni pasta bake. I forgot to add the balsamic vinegar, but the recipe had a good flavor regardless. Added mozzarella cheese on top. YUM!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
This chicken has an awesome flavor, is super-moist, and is something I will definitely be making again. I omitted the corn syrup in this recipe. It did not taste like anything we had ever eaten at a restaurant, but still we loved our meal. I served it with a simple salad. Thank you!

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I made this recipe with homemade chili instead of canned. I preferred the taste of my chili over store-bought, but I will not be making this recipe again. The first bite was pretty good, but as we continued eating it the dish got increasingly more greasy-tasting. Interesting recipe, though!

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
This bread is amazing. Be careful to not overcook your bread or its wonderful moistness will disappear! I did not have allspice, so instead of the spices listed in the recipe I used the following: 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. cloves, 1/8 tsp. ginger. All other ingredients (salt, baking powder, baking soda, flour, etc.) I used as normal. Replacing sugar with Splenda works well with this recipe. If making standard-sized muffins bake for 30-35 minutes. This pumpkin bread is highly recommended!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
I would give this recipe ten stars if I could! These cookies are simply amazing. They have a very nice gingerbread taste and cook nicely. For softer cookies bake around 6 minutes, and for harder cookies bake 8-10 minutes. Do make sure your dough is thoroughly chilled before you try rolling it out. Follow the recipe exactly and you will not be disappointed!

Honey Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I found this recipe and needed it to be ready immediately for dinner before it cooled. I used yellow mustard instead of dijon-style because I didn't have any on hand. This sauce was the perfect addition to my chicken nuggets and salad! Thanks for a recipe I will definitely use again.

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
This was a great change from the ordinary sandwich. You do not have to mix the mayo and Italian dressing together before spreading it on the bread; simply spreading the mayo and drizzling the dressing inside makes the sandwich tasty and keeps you from having to wash a bowl! Swiss was not on sale so I used provolone instead, and the sandwich was still incredible. My husband and I will be making this again and again!
